Victim Status

Banner January 2021

We do we Lionize victims?

Nothing so reeks of poison

As victim status.

A victim..of racism, or any

Perceived imagined injustice,

Is convenientely above the law

By way of a romanticized notion

Of pseudo justice?

Should I be locked up

In a cage and straight jacket

For fear of offending the victims?

Must time and space collapse

Irrevocably in case of risk

To their fragile sense

Of importance?
